Presentation of the
LanguageCert USAL esPro

LanguageCert USAL esPro is a suite of tests used to certify the candidate’s Spanish language level on the CEFR scale (A1 to C2). LanguageCert USAL esPro focuses on Spanish for specific purposes (educational and professional).

The content of the test has been developed by Cursos Internacionales de la Universidad de Salamanca, the language department of the prestigious University of Salamanca point of reference for teaching Spanish as foreign language. It is administered by LanguageCert, an Awarding Organisation member of PeopleCert Group, that spearheads innovations in language assessment and certification, providing high-quality services to the global learners’ community.

LanguageCert USAL esPro is a suite of three tests, which can be taken independently and separately and lead to corresponding certificates assessing levels from A1 to C2:

esPRO exists in two different formats :

  • LanguageCert USAL esPro Listening & Reading (available in Paper-based and Computer-based Adaptive format): contains multiple choices, cloze and gapped sentences and assesses candidate’s listening and reading skills. The test duration depending on the format is: 60 minutes for the Computer-based and 110 minutes for the Paper-based format. Both versions are equivalent to one another. Therefore, no matter which format the candidate chooses, results will be the same, leading to a certificate depending on the candidate’s performance. Adaptive test means that, based on the answer given from the candidate, the test gradually becomes more difficult or easier, adapting to the knowledge level of the candidate.
  • LanguageCert USAL esPro Writing (available only in Paper-based format): assesses candidate’s writing skills and is divided in two parts where the candidate has to write a short message (50-60 words) and a report or a letter using an appropriate style and language based on instructions given (180-200 words). The duration is 45 minutes.
  • • LanguageCert USAL esPro Speaking (available only in Paper-based format): assesses the candidate’s spoken abilities and is divided into three sections: interview, presentation of a work-related topic, information exchange and discussion.

LanguageCert USAL esPro is available in two formats:

The LanguageCert USAL esPro has multiple sections that you can take independly from each other :

  • Computer-based adaptive format available only for the Listening & Reading test, evaluates the candidate’s Spanish proficiency in only 60 minutes with the same level of precision as with the paper test. It is an innovative, flexible and agile way to take a language exam. The score is automatically calculated at the end of the test and reflects the candidate’s performance.
  • Paper-based format is available for Listening & Reading (longer than the Computer-based version), Writing and Speaking tests.

The task types are the same in both formats of the test (Paper and Computer-based) and our online preparation platform is suitable for both formats.

Our online preparation platform covers the 3 tests of LanguageCert USAL esPro with lessons, exercises and dedicated materials.
